Threat of rain has passed, partly cloudy skies predicted. No excuse to miss the 13th Annual Rochester Dachshund Parade at Washington Square Park from 10 AM until Noon today! See you all there, and bring your cameras.
At this year's parade we will be introducing our Memory Book for collecting photos and remembrances of all the dachshunds we have loved and lost. Come to the Memory Book table on the south side of the monument (facing GEVA Theater) where there will be materials for you to write a note or draw a picture or paste a photo to memorialize your special pet. You can also create your 8.5 X 11 inch memory page in advance and bring it to the table on parade day, May 10, 2014.
Mark your calendars! Saturday, May 10, 2014 from 10:00 AM to Noon in Washington Square Park, 181 S. Clinton Ave., Rochester, NY 14604 (across from GEVA). Convenient parking can be found at Washington Square Ramp Garage.
Can you believe it -- the Rochester Dachshund Parade turns 13 this year. You could even say, "We're not a kid anymore!" But all the kids are invited along with the moms and dads and grandparents to enjoy the magnificent sight of wiener dogs on parade in the heart of the city. It's been a long, cold, snowy winter, so come out and enjoy one of Rochester's rites of spring and the Parade's lucky 13th!
For 2014 we have embroidered parade T-shirts in two different colors for an $18 donation as well as embroidered parade towels for $15 (cash only please), with a portion of the proceeds going to support Rochester Hope for Pets and the Verona Street Animal Society. There will also be a variety of vendors offering handcrafted dachshund-themed items as well as free pet treats provided by Pet Saver Superstore.
New this year will be a Memory Book for collecting photos and remembrances of all the dachshunds we have loved and lost.
Our parade is partially underwritten by Monroe Veterinary Associates. There will be dog health information available from Veterinary Specialists of Rochester and Animal Emergency Service and from TheraVet Acres with special focus on the needs of dachshunds with back problems. The “official” parade hot dog provider, Dave’s Sidewalk Café, will return, and this year our sound will be provided by Keyboard Repair.
The Dachshund Parade Committee is a group of dachshund owners in the Rochester area who are committed to promoting responsible pet ownership. While the primary function is to stage an annual world-class gathering of dachshunds and their owners in downtown Rochester, members are encouraged to work year-round to:
>> Provide education to dachshund owners about health issues. >> Support well managed breed rescue efforts. >> Give financial support to community organizations dedicated to relief of animal suffering. >> Celebrate the joy of the breed.
